Alberta to ease oil production cut again cites lower storage levels

first_imgShe says that is why the province plans to move more oil by rail as Alberta fights for the long-term solution of building pipelines to new markets. EDMONTON, A.B. – Premier Rachel Notley says Alberta will again ease mandatory oil production cuts due to lower storage levels.The province says it will allow increased production by 25,000 barrels per day in April.This will be the second increase since December when the government ordered production of raw crude oil and bitumen to be cut by 325,000 barrels per day to deal with low prices. The first increase was on Jan. 30 when Notley announced the province would allow increased production by 75,000 barrels per day.The government says oil storage levels are trending downward and the price difference between Alberta heavy oil and West Texas Intermediate remains narrow.The province also says warmer weather in spring could mean less diluent will be needed in pipelines, which helps oil flow easier.“As we fight to get full value for the resources owned by all Albertans, we know that our plan is working as we continue to reduce the amount of oil we have in storage,” Notley said Thursday in a release.“The decision to temporarily limit production was applied fairly and equitably, and our plan is working to stop allowing our resource to be sold for pennies on the dollar.”Notley says the short-term production limit is not ideal or sustainable.last_img read more

Moroccan Preacher Slams Channel 2M for Degrading Qadi Ayyad

Rabat – Moroccan Islamist preacher Hassan Kettani condemned degrading Islamist scholar Qadi Ayyad during a comedy show that Moroccan television channel 2M aired on New Year’s Eve.During the most recent episode of his show “Al Jumua Talk” on Youtube, Kettani criticized 2M, saying: that channel had invited a “ridiculous” comedian who used “degrading and insulting” words against Imam Ayyad.The comedian used Qadi Ayyad’s name as the punchline for a joke that associated “Qadi” with “excrement,” saying: “At home you have a bathroom that has a small library inside. You read Qadi Ayyad’s book and you are done defecating.” Born in Ceuta in 1083 under the Almoravid dynasty, Qadi Ayyad was the scion of a notable scholarly family. Ayyad became a prestigious scholar and great Imam of Ceuta and then a magistrate in the Emirate of Granada. Sheikh Kettani excused the comedian, citing the fact that he might not have been familiar with Ayyad. However, Kettani stressed that 2M, “which gets paid from the public money,” did not accidentally show the scene. The channel “is used to degrading sacred Islam,” including disrespecting the status of the Prophet Muhammad and Islamist scholars, he said.Read Also: Moroccan Cleric Annahari Stirs Row Over New Year’s Eve CelebrationAfter citing some of Ayyad’s works, Kettani called for respecting scholars and stressed that Moroccans should show indignation over the comedian making a mockery of Ayyad.He also called on Ulama councils’ scholars and intellectuals to condemn and raise voices against this act.Ayyad served as a judge in Ceuta between 1121 and 1136. He lost a revolt that he headed against the coming of the Almohades to Ceuta. Ayyad was then exiled to Tadla in central Morocco and later to Marrakech, where he died in 1149.Morocco’s Cadi Ayyad University in Marrakech was named after Qadi Ayyad. He is also known as one of the “seven saints of Marrakech.” Seikh Kettani was a former political prisoner. In September 2003, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison for alleged connections to the Casablanca bombings in 2003. Eight years later, Kettani was granted a royal pardon due to efforts by his lawyer, Mustapha Ramid, who later became Morocco’s Minister of Justice.Since his release, Kettani has denounced extremism and encouraged its rejection. read more

Commentary Ohio States LaQuinton Ross still not ready for primetime

It feels like depth has always been an issue for Thad Matta-coached basketball teams. It’s not that the Ohio State players who are on the bench aren’t talented, but more that those players on the bench stay on the bench. Matta has a tendency to find a few guys that he really trusts, usually five or six guys, and rotate that small group instead of giving them a rest and letting younger players grow. Although Matta’s success here at OSU can’t be questioned, his system has started to show its weakness in recent seasons when fatigue begins to set in during the NCAA Tournament. This year though, that formula has changed out of necessity rather than revelation. Matta has been swapping about eight players consistently, with three players – junior guards Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr. and junior forward Deshaun Thomas – averaging about 30 minutes a game. But outside of Thomas, the Buckeyes don’t have a consistent second scoring threat. A few players have stepped into the role on a game-by-game basis (like Craft, Smith Jr. or sophomore forward Sam Thompson) but aren’t able to keep it up over an extended stretch. It is a perplexing problem, but many fans think they have the solution. Sophomore forward LaQuinton Ross has been singled out by some fans for his natural scoring ability as the obvious choice to take some of the pressure off of Thomas’ shoulders. Against Wisconsin Tuesday, Ross totaled eight points on 3-of-4 shooting. For the most part, Matta has remained defiant and Ross continues to sit on the bench for many of OSU’s contests this season. Ross is only averaging 17 minutes a game, despite being second on the team behind Thomas in terms of scoring efficiency. And while, relatively, Ross’ time on the court isn’t anything to snicker at, it’s not reflective of a player with the potential to be an elite scorer. But why wouldn’t Matta play Ross if OSU is so desperate for a second option? Thomas can’t carry the team on his own forever. Although the fans have a point about Ross being a talented scorer, the problems with Ross might outweigh the rewards. As good as Ross is on offense, he is equally bad on defense. It is hard to imagine that on an OSU team, a squad that has been known for its defense since Matta took over the program in 2004, that someone who is such a defensive liability would get significant playing time. Notice during the final five or so minutes how rare it is for Ross to receive minutes. He might aid in games during the middle stretches, but never starts and never closes, a sign of Matta’s lack of trust in the young forward. Although his outing against the Badgers shows marked improvement, it is still not enough to convince Matta to give Ross a more significant role. He might see more playing time come his way during certain games this season, but don’t expect for him to play vital minutes against Michigan Tuesday or Indiana on Feb. 10. For the Buckeyes to make a run in the NCAA Tournament similar to last season’s, they need someone to come out of the woodwork to help Thomas. Ross might be that guy someday. But for now? He’s not quite the answer. read more

For female tennis players and their fans, the road to true equality may seem long and hard.Go back a century, though, and the seeds of parity between the sexes had already been sown, according to an unseen archive of films.A treasure trove of tennis films, due to be made available to the public for the first time, shows how the enlightened tennis establishment push the sport as “the most democratic game for both sexes” as far back as 1924.Players in corsets were lauded on film, with girls encouraged to pick up a tennis racket to emulate their role models.As the years rolled on, adverts aimed at women tried to woo them via tennis, promising hair products and Nimble bread would improve their game. More than 70 films, from 1903 onwards, are to be released by the British Film Institute; most available to the public for the first time since they were originally broadcast.They include famous faces such British tennis star Fred Perry, Australia’s multi-grand slam winner Ken Rosewall, and a 15-year-old Sue Barker playing in 1971.One of the most remarkable, from 1926, shows George VI – then the Duke of York – playing at Wimbledon. The earliest film in the collection, entitled “Jumping Over the Tennis Nets” A 15-year-old Sue BarkerCredit:BFI The earliest film in the collection, entitled “Jumping Over the Tennis Nets”Credit:BFI Archive 1926 newsreel entitled “Detachable Dress for Sportswomen” Credit:BFI Archive It is followed in 1964 with an extraordinary advert promising women can “eat all the bread you want” while being a tennis ace, promising: “Eat Nimble, be nimble”.More serious films show player Ann Jones speaking in 1968 about equal pay, arguing women should receive for two thirds of the men’s salary: an improvement from the £300 prize money for women and £1000 for men in her recent British Hard Court Championships.Gosta Johansson, curatorial consultant on the BFI Tennis on Film collection, said the films would give tennis fans the chance to see big names they will have read and heard about in action on film for the first time. Detachable Dress for Sportswomen, 1926 1926 newsreel entitled “Detachable Dress for Sportswomen”  A 1926 newsreel entitled “Detachable Dress for Sportswomen” details a fetching new fashion, for a hidden pair of baggy shorts hidden behind a loose skirt to protect players’ modesty. “There’s very little feeling of women’s tennis being inferior to men’s at any point.”He and his team scoured the BFI archives, National Archive and regional collections to come up with the best films, which are likely to have been shown on cinema screens or at local clubs even before television was invented and in many cases have not been seen in public since.  The collection, Tennis on Film, is available to watch for free on the BFI Player from Monday. Playing in the Men’s Doubles with Louis Greig, with his wife watching on from the stands, he lost in the first round.A film from the same year, 1926, sees King George V and Queen Mary present trophies to Wimbledon winners, including the rather portly Maud Watson, by then the oldest female competitor.The hugely successful player had first entered the tournament in 1884, wearing a white corset and petticoats.Similar outfits can be seen in the earliest film in the collection, entitled “Jumping Over the Tennis Nets” and taken from a collection of home movies by Alfred Ernest Passmore.Showing his family in holiday spirits, Edwardian women are seen attempting – not always successfully – to hop over a low tennis net in full skirts and hats.By the 1920s, filmmakers appear determined to convince women to pick up their tennis rackets.last_img read more

Un hominidé inconnu côtoyait Lucy il y a 34 millions dannées

first_imgUn hominidé inconnu côtoyait Lucy il y a 3,4 millions d’annéesDes chercheurs américains ont analysé des os de pied fossilisés vieux de 3,4 millions d’années découvert en 2009 dans l’Arar éthiopien. L’étude, publiée le 29 mars dans Nature, indique qu’un hominidé plutôt arboricole – dont l’espèce reste encore à déterminer – fréquentait cette région en même temps que Lucy, le célèbre Australopithèque.C’est à Burtele, dans la région de l’Afar, en Éthiopie, que des chercheurs ont découvert, en février 2009, les fossiles fragmentaires d’un pied d’hominidé, dont l’étude vient d’être publiée. La radio-datation du spécimen par la méthode Argon-Argon lui donne un âge de 3,46 millions d’années. Ses caractéristiques le désignent d’une espèce différente – encore non déterminée – de celle de la célèbre Lucy (Australopithecus afarensis), qui fréquentait également le site à cette époque.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Le pied partiel de Burtele montre clairement qu’il y a 3,4 millions d’années , l’espèce de Lucy, qui marchait sur ses deux jambes, n’était pas la seule espèce d’hominidé vivant dans cette région de l’Éthiopie. Son espèce a coexisté avec des parents proches qui étaient plus aptes à grimper aux arbres”, a déclaré le Dr Yohannes Haile-Selassie, anthropologue au Cleveland Museum of Natural History, directeur de l’étude.”Cette découverte a été un choc. Ces éléments fossiles représentent des os que nous n’avons jamais vus auparavant. Alors que le gros orteil, préhensile, pouvait se déplacer de gauche à droite, il n’y a pas d’expansion, au-dessus de l’articulation, qui permettrait l’amplitude de mouvement nécessaire pour pousser sur le sol lors d’une marche bipède. Cette créature devait probablement avoir une démarche un peu gauche quand elle se déplaçait sur le sol”, a précisé le Dr Bruce Latimer, de la Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, Ohio), co-auteur de l’étude.

Obésité la flore intestinale jouerait bien un rôle dans le surpoids

first_imgObésité : la flore intestinale jouerait bien un rôle dans le surpoidsSelon l’Institut national de recherche agronomique (Inra), plusieurs études semblent confirmer que les personnes obèses ayant un déficit de certaines bactéries intestinales ont un risque plus élevé de développer des maladies qui sont directement liées à leur surpoids.L’obésité est aujourd’hui devenu un véritable problème de santé publique qui ne cesse de s’intensifier dans certains pays. Selon l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS), plus de 700 millions de personnes pourraient ainsi être obèses d’ici 2015. Des chiffres qui alarment de plus en plus les chercheurs qui tentent de se pencher sur les origines de cette condition.L’obésité est généralement considérée comme une maladie multifactorielle, autrement dit, attribuée à des causes à la fois environnementales (mode de vie, nourriture trop riche et abondante) et génétiques. Mais une autre piste est envisagée depuis plusieurs années, celle de la flore intestinale, c’est-à-dire les milliards de bactéries qui colonisent notre système digestif. Plus précisément, c’est le “microbiome”, le génome global de toutes ces bactéries qui pourrait jouer un rôle important dans l’obésité. Aujourd’hui, deux études menées au Danemark et en France par l’Institut national de recherche agronomique (Inra) et des chercheurs internationaux viennent apporter un peu plus de crédit à cette hypothèse. En effet, les résultats de ces travaux suggèrent que les personnes obèses ayant un déficit de certaines bactéries intestinales ont un risque plus élevé de développer des maladies telles qu’un diabète, un excès de cholestérol, certains cancers ou des problèmes hépatiques et cardio-vasculaires. Or, ces pathologies sont pour certaines directement liées à ce surpoids.Des bactéries protectrices Plus en détail, les deux études publiées dans la revue Nature ont permis de distinguer deux groupes d’individus se différenciant par la faible ou forte richesse de leur flore intestinale et par leur susceptibilité face aux maladies liées à l’obésité, rapporte l’AFP. C’est alors en comparant les deux groupes que les chercheurs ont observé des différences significatives. Les personnes “pauvres” en bactéries intestinales (360.000 gènes microbiens différents en moyenne contre 580.000 dans le second groupe) avaient un risque plus important de développer des maladies métaboliques.De plus, les personnes faisant partie du premier groupe prenaient davantage de poids dans le temps que les autres. En allant plus loin, les scientifiques sont parvenus à identifier six espèces bactériennes permettant de différencier les personnes ayant une flore intestinale “riche” ou “pauvre” avec une précision de 95%. Chez les personnes ayant pris le plus de poids, huit espèces bactériennes n’étaient présentes qu’en faible quantité, “ce qui pourrait signifier qu’elles jouent un rôle protecteur contre la prise de poids”, souligne M. Ehrlich.Un régime riche en fibres, fruits et légumes À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Selon les scientifique, cette découverte pourrait ouvrir la voie à “la mise en place de marqueurs bactériens spécifiques pour identifier les personnes à risques”. “De nouvelles thérapies basées sur des bactéries pour lutter contre la prise de poids” pourraient également voir le jour a indiqué à l’AFP Stanislas Dusko Ehrlich, directeur de recherche à l’Inra. Néanmoins, l’étude menée en France sur 49 personnes obèses ou en surpoids, s’est aussi intéressée au moyen d’améliorer la diversité de notre flore intestinale. Selon les résultats obtenus, adopter un régime alimentaire riche en fibres et en fruits et légumes pendant au moins trois mois (12 semaines) pourrait permettre d’accroitre cette diversité microbienne et par là-même, de réduire certaines des complications liées à l’obésité. Toutefois, la mise en place d’un régime alimentaire chez les individus pauvres en espèces bactériennes ne semblerait pas suffire à éliminer les inflammations chroniques liées à l’obésité.Le 29 août 2013 à 16:33 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Deloitte doubles paid parental leave for nonbirth parents

first_imgProfessional services firm Deloitte, which has more than 16,000 employees, has doubled its paid parental leave benefit for non-birth parents, offering four weeks of fully paid leave.The enhanced parental leave benefit, effective from 1 October 2019, enables any father, same-sex spouse or partner, civil partner or adoptive parent with at least 26 weeks of continuous service to take up to four weeks of paid leave. This can be taken in two blocks; one within the first 56 days of the baby’s birth, and the second at any time within the child’s first year.Previously, Deloitte offered two weeks of paid parental leave for non-birth parents, also known as paternity leave.The organisation has enhanced its leave for non-birth parents in order to reinforce its culture of supporting working parents.Deloitte has already improved the pay for shared parental leave in alignment with this goal; since the benefit was introduced in 2015, 200 employees have taken shared parental leave.Dimple Agarwal (pictured), managing partner for people and purpose, said: “We’ve listened to feedback and understand that an increasing number of non-birthing parents want the opportunity to be able to play a more active parenting role, both in those first weeks and longer term. However, take-up numbers for this leave is disappointingly low and we are very keen to change this.“This promise to our Deloitte families is all part of our commitment to inclusion, where we are creating an environment of respect, dignity and belonging for all. What’s more, we’ve increased flexibility as to when and how this leave can be taken as we recognise that when it comes to family commitments, one size doesn’t fit all.”last_img read more

Support ecotourism as a traveller

first_imgPlanning to go on a vacation? Try being a responsible traveller. With global warming and rising pollution levels, we need to care for our mountains, beaches, hills and the very air we breathe. Walk more, carry your own bag while shopping, suggest experts.Here are some tips on how you can save the environment while travelling:No vehicle roads: Explore a new city on foot like the Mall Road in Shimla, Cinque Terre (The Italian Riveria) and Giethoorn village (Netherlands) where vehicles are not allowed. Walking is the best option to soak up the local flavour. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSay no to plastic bags: If you are travelling to any of the hill stations in India, be sure to carry your own bag while shopping. You won’t be getting any plastic bag even for food items!No smoking zones: A vacation in cities like Beijing, Chandigarh, Chennai, Liverpool and Mexico will mean that you have to leave your cigarette case at home as all these places are no-smoking zones.Go for green transportation: Bid goodbye to your traditional transportation modes and go for the new, trendy e-bikes and cycles which will be your best bet. Brands like Hero and many others have a whole new range of e-bikes that you will enjoy riding. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveChoose eco-friendly dwellings: Go beyond swanky hotels and air-conditioned rooms. And choose a homestay instead. Many of them are built with eco-friendly materials and exercise initiatives like water recycling. A farm stay will offer ample opportunities to experience life at a working farm firsthand and learn valuable lessons of sustainability.Travel in packs: Don’t forget your cars can seat four people comfortably. Find people travelling the same route and pool together for a road trip. Save some petrol money and also do the environment some good. Eat local, buy local: Living in a plantation is your chance to experience the earth beneath your feet in a different way. Join the farmers in harvesting the local produce. Buy local, organic food and give back to the land that’s hosting you.Leave it the way you found it: Your keywords here are conserve, re-use and recycle. Don’t leave behind any plastic and spoil what’s perfect. Don’t use plastic at all. Dispose your waste responsibly and don’t litter your surroundings.Sightsee a little differently: Forget taxis and cabs and take the local transport instead. Cycle along the meandering paths and watch gorgeous sights scurry past you. Sightseeing is way more fun on two wheels.Plant a tree wherever you go: While you take back memories and incredible experiences from a place, leave behind a little something for the land in return. Plant a tree wherever you or sow a seed on the street, and whisper a small thank you to the place for being a wonderful host.last_img read more

Intel Wants You to Stop Hating Meetings

first_img The worst part about meetings isn’t showing off your new presentation; it’s how difficult it is to get your computer screen to show up on the TV.At Computex, Intel introduced its real-time collaboration solution Unite to remove some of the headaches associated with sharing presentations. The system uses a secure Wi-Fi connection with a rotating PIN to connect to a Core vPro processor-powered mini PC connected to an office’s display. Attendees download and install a lightweight client on their Mac or Windows machine and can share their desktop, annotate shared presentations and view up to four attendee’s screens at once.It’s a pretty straightforward solution. It makes meetings start quicker and gives attendees the ability to work together on a single presentation. But, it’s the upcoming extensibility that could convince your IT department to drop your current solution for Unite.Intel will release reference plugins in the next 30 days that will add additional functions to the Unite platform including a Skype plugin that can be used to turn the collaborative-meeting system into a teleconferencing system. These reference plugins will coincide with the release of a Unite SDK for third-party developers.The upcoming reference plugins will also include a way to control a room’s lighting and a telepresence solution. But Intel is keen to see what the community builds for the platform.It’s a low-cost platform (roughly $700 with a computer according to Intel) that’s already available for large IT departments. Intel VP of Business Client Platform Division Tom Garrison noted that those departments will be able to deploy updates to all devices running Unite just like any other PC on a network. For small businesses looking for a meeting solution, a version for them will be available in 30 days.

65magnitude quake strikes off Guatemalas coast

first_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement GUATEMALA CITY (AP) – A 6.5-magnitude earthquake shook Guatemala’s Pacific coastline on Friday evening, causing some adobe homes to collapse in a town near the epicenter. There were no immediate reports of injuries.The U.S. Geological Survey said the epicenter was 6 kilometers (3 miles) south of the small town of Pajapita, near the border with Mexico, and 168 kilometers west of Guatemala City. It had a depth of 67 kilometers (41 miles). (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Top Stories Patients with chronic pain give advice Guatemala’s fire department issued a statement saying some poorly-built homes were destroyed in the town of Patzicia, located between the epicenter and the capital city. The Central American nation’s natural disaster agency said that at least three uninhabited homes collapsed, and two highways were blocked by landslides.The quake was felt strongly in the capital of Guatemala City, and caused blackouts in some areas, but authorities did not immediately report any damage there.“People living in Guatemala City’s tall buildings were panicked,” said Eddy Sanchez, director of Guatemala’s National Institute of Seismology.People ran outside their homes and some motorists stopped their cars in the capital. An aftershock of a lower magnitude further frightened capital-dwellers.The temblor was also felt in neighboring Mexico and El Salvador, but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage in those countries.Friday’s temblor was one of the strongest in Guatemala since a 7.4-magnitude earthquake last November killed 44 people in the country’s west. That quake was the strongest in 36 years and left thousands of people homeless and without electricity or water.
